So during “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”, Pepa is particularly adamant that they don’t speak her brother’s name, especially because she shows some resentment towards him for indirectly ruining her wedding (even though it was over 20 years ago). AND she’s beyond shocked when Félix reveals to her that Mirabel was in Bruno’s vision (as her stormy cloud proves)! 😆🤣
Yet when Bruno reveals himself during “All of You”, what happens? While both Pepa and Julieta gasp upon seeing him, Pepa smiles with joy clearly on her face. And if I’m not mistaken, her eyes seem to be welling up with tears while she smiles. Regardless of whatever animosity she still holds towards Bruno, Pepa is clearly overjoyed to see him again after ten long years.
Then what happens next? Pepa is the first of the two sisters who rushes over to Bruno to embrace him. I mean, yes, Julieta runs to hug Bruno, too, but it’s Pepa who does it first. And when she hugs him, she doesn’t simply throw her arms around him: she actually SCOOPS him up in her arms and holds him there as Julieta joins her and Bruno hugs both of them!
While both sisters show pure joy at seeing their brother again, Pepa’s reaction is more meaningful to me because her earlier attitude towards Bruno implied that she hated him, yet her actions here completely disprove that.
Sisters, as you know, also have a unique relationship. This is the person who has known you your entire life, who should love you and stand by you no matter what, and yet it's your sister who knows exactly where to drive the knife to hurt you the most.

Do you all remember this comic? I drew this one just over a year ago as well. I don't tend to post comics more than once, but I'm figuring out more things to do with the move this week AND I've been feeling very nostalgic about older comics that I've made haha. Lots of nostalgia these days while I'm meeting up and reminiscing with my sisters about our childhoods.
I was trying to explain to my asexual sister why I find sex appealing and the only arguement I could think of was "it makes monkey brain go HOOHAA" and she laughed so hard she fell off the couch so I did something right.
